It also aimed to check occupational stress with reference to types of employees and level of experience. The Occupational Stress Index prepared by Dr. A.K. Srivastava and Dr. A.P.

The sample constituted total 160 employees out of which 80 were from types of employees (40 technical and 40 non-technical) and 80 from level of experience (1 to 5 years and More than 6 years). The data was collected from various industrial complies of Gujarat State. The data was scored, analyzed as per the manual. ‘F’ test was being calculated. The result showed that (1) There is no significant difference in the mean score of the occupational stress among technical and non-technical working employees.
